The Twelve Gifts of Christmas...Day Eight!

John 3:17
"For God sent not his Son 
into the world to condemn the world; 
but that the world through him might be saved."

What an enormous gift...we could 
never out-give God.

Congratulations!!!

Now...on to day EIGHT!!!!    
Remember...

In the spirit of the season, 
I thought I would give a few gifts...
Twelve to be exact!
Here's how this will work...
In the span of 12 days, 
I will be gifting a "present" a day!

Every night at 10 p.m. (CST) --
a winner will be chosen 
and your gift will go out the next business day!

You only need to leave a comment 
on today's post...
Every year the families on our street,
come together on the second weekend
of December for a progressive dinner...
Rotating each year, three of the families 
 volunteer to sponsor appetizers, 
the main course and desserts
in their homes for the rest of us...
Not only have we gotten to know each other
so much better, we get to welcome newcomers
and catch up on how our year has gone.
We laugh, tell stories, and share 
in each other's lives
AND
eat GREAT FOOD!

What is your favorite Christmas event? 
See you tomorrow night!!!!
AT TEN O-CLOCK!!!
Remember, leave me a way to contact you if you win..

  7. It has to be seeing so many family members. The family has grown so much in the 40 years we have been married and our extended family is so widespread it is hard to see a lot of them.... even our immediate family doesn't get together as often as we used to. At Christmas we get to see more family members and some years it is the only time we get to see each other. It is difficult when most of our family is spread across Canada... mostly in Ontario and we live in the US....it is lots of traveling and sometimes the winter snow storms makes the traveling difficult...but well worth it when we finally share a hug!!!

  11. I love the red dining room. My SIL has that too and it looks so festive at Christmas and just beautiful the rest of the year.

    One of my favorite festivities is enjoying dinner at our son's home followed by a trip to look at Christmas lights. The children get so excited and we make bets as to how many Santas we will see each year.

  13. My favorite event is a local concert called Lessons and Carols - modeled after the one in England. They go through 9 lessons from Scripture, and have songs that go with each one. It's a family tradition to go every second weekend of December. :)

  16. My favorite Christmas events are the concerts, band and choral that my family are in. I am the only one who doesn't sing or play an instrument so I am always the audience. I just love it. Merry Christmas.

  17. My favorite Christmas event is the Lessons & Carols concert at a local church...actually it's about an hour away, and we have to drive over the mountain to get there. But we look forward to it every year. The choir comes down the aisle with lighted candles singing Once in Royal David's City. It's beautiful. debgiro at wildblue dot net

  18. My favorite Christmas event is when the family gathers at my mother's - 4 generations - to eat dinner and exchange presents. It is casual, low key, and happy times. mlwright29 (at) hotmail (dot) com

  19. It used to be getting up early Christmas morning and sitting by my sweet husband with a cup of coffee as the boys opened their presents. Now that they're grown, I'm trying to find new activities. Anything I do with family during the holidays is special whether it's shopping, baking, sharing a meal or just sitting together and remembering the funny things we've done in the past.
